MPhil Educational Leadership and Management (MPhil ELM)

Program Introduction

The concept of leadership dates back to antiquity still robust at present among all people of world regardless of culture or organizational context. The field of educational leadership and management is pluralist, with many competing perspectives and an inevitable lack of agreement on the exact nature of the discipline.

The School of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSS&H) at UMT is offering a two-year MPhil Educational Leadership and Management degree program. The program offers a broad perspective to view various leadership theories and practices keeping that pluralist vision in mind.

The MPhil program 2021 introduces participants to theory as well as national and international educational practices. The participants connect these considerations with their own experiences and through dialogue and the sharing of ideas and information broaden their knowledge, and enhance their capabilities. Additionally, the degree also provides an opportunity for participants to develop specialized research skills as a foundation for further professional investigation in the substantive area of educational leadership.

The program offers challenging curricula, a variety of teaching-learning methodologies and a supportive academic environment to meet its objectives. The large pool of in-house PhDs in various schools of UMT, including the School of Social Sciences and Humanities provides interdisciplinary discussion in the areas of common interest, whilst widening the learning horizons of the students.

The MPhil Educational Leadership and Management degree equips graduates with skills in methodology of conducting research, prepares them to become educational leaders for educational institutes for both public and private sector.
